SOC 357 Violence and Reconciliation in Northern Ireland (3 credits)

The course will examine violence and reconciliation in Northern Ireland from both a philosophical and sociological perspective. The instructors will pay special attention to both the socio-historical roots of the "Troubles" and the moral context of discourses of retribution and forgiveness. During the stay in Ireland, SJU students are guests of Corrymeela, an ecumenical community committed to the reconciliation by providing a "safe and shared space" where people can meet as Protestants and British and Irish, rich and poor, and through open dialogue and interaction grow in trust with others. Students, during the second week of the stay, will be expected to live with a family in Belfast and cross-cultural community site. Criminal Justice elective.

Pre-requisite SOC 101 or SOC 102
